Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: A review of a show from 1976 inspired by William Tell

What is the World coming to? Reviews of a show I attended, BUT in the wrong era? WTF?

Oh well, might as well just go with the flow...

Somehow, 76 just doesn't stand out in my mind as the best of the yrs I saw the boys. But, I will pull out the old copies of this one to give it a listen for the sake of Elbow.

Thanks for the post.

Actually 1976 was a very interesting year. it was right after their year off and they came back with new songs and ideas. For instance, I enjoy Mission in the Rain, the Wheel and Crazy Fingers. There is a lot of Grateful Dead music over the years. Listen to it and choose what you like. Feel free to be as picky as you wish.

There you have me...I have admitted it before; Dire's love, Peggy-O, and both of ours, Crazy Fingers, were two great songs I had the chance to witness a number of times.

Thanks for the reminder.

No arguments here, however I think the Missions done by JGB in 76 were much better than the Dead versions. Maybe this was a song that benefitted by having only one drummer and one guitar.

I wasn't seeing the Dead in '76. I was working mostly on Boy Scouts and sports and getting interested in girls at the skating rink.

I like '76 as a transitional period before the fabled '77 where they sound different and where they have made changes after the time off... I'm coming out of a long 72-74 phase and getting to know this sound more. I like the energetic yet laid back feel. They slow some things down, but not yet at a lethargic tempo like some later years.
